AirJet® Cherry Grader
The AirJet® sorting system is the most technologically advanced cherry grading machinery on the market. The line features three types of AirJetTM Vision cameras – full HD, black and white, and near infrared (NIR) cameras. The grading machinery captures 21 images of the fruit surface, allowing inspection of more than 90% of the surface of each fruit. The machine enables sorting according to:
- Size – the dimensions of each fruit are calculated based on 21 optical camera images;
- Softness/firmness – the machine is able to separate cherries into 5 standard softness categories: intended for freezing, semi-soft, semi-hard, hard and extra-hard, and others, allowing producers to adjust the quality of fruit for sale to different markets and according to the individual requirements of their customers;
- Defects – the AirJetTM Vision’s GPJ technology detects internal and external defects in fruit, such as bruising, discolouration and dryness, and other defects caused by various weather conditions;
- Colour – the AirJet® sorting system can reject red, green, and underripe fruit.
The AirJet® system from GP Graders sorts cherries at the rate of up to 30.2 units per second per line, thus providing extremely high throughput while maintaining sorting accuracy.
